I had a second IME with the insurance Co. They set me up with the same idiot and without suprise he gave me a simular evaluation as the first.
My lower L-4 L-5 S-1 are herniated and bulging with anular tears. I had a consultation with a spine specialist a couple of days ago and he insists that what now needs to take place is spinal surgery. He suggested a 2 level fusion with a possible disc replacment.
This QUACK of an IME doctor said yesterday that I need to turn away running and screaming from this surgery. He stated that the majority of my problem with my injury is mental and that I need to take anti-depressents? What the F!!! ! I tried my best to keep a straight face but instead turned to him and said " that's why your a insurance robo-doc & he's a spine specialist, I think I'll take his advice there crazy man" !
My question is, do think his suggestions are so that the insur. does not have to pay the bill for the surgery? Thanks Forum
